Background The Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA) provides that no person shall engage in any farm labor contracting activity for any money or valuable consideration paid or promised to be paid, unless such person has a certificate of registration from the Secretary of Labor specifying which farm labor contracting activities such person is authorized to perform. See 29 U.S.C. 1802(7), 1811(a); 29 CFR 500.1(c), 500.20(i), 500.40. MSPA also provides that a Farm Labor Contractor (FLC) shall not hire, employ, or use any individual to perform farm labor contracting activities unless such individual has a certificate of registration as a FLC or a certificate of registration as a Farm Labor Contractor Employee (FLCE) of the FLC that authorizes the activity for which such individual is hired, employed or used. 29 U.S.C. 1811(b); 29 CFR 500.1(c). Form WH–530 is an application used to obtain a FLC or FLCE certificate of registration. The Department proposes to revise form WH–530 by dividing it into three separate forms, two of which are new forms (WH–535 and WH–540), serving separate purposes. Additionally, the Department proposes to develop electronic forms mirroring the revised and new paper forms so that applications may be submitted online for WH–530, WH–535, and WH–540.

These MSPA safety standards address the vehicle, driver, and insurance. The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) has created forms WH–514, WH– 514a, and WH–515, which allow FLC applicants to verify to the WHD that the vehicles used to transport migrant/ seasonal agricultural workers meet the MSPA vehicle safety standards and that anyone who drives such workers meets the Act’s minimum physical requirements. The WHD uses the information collected on the forms in deciding whether to authorize the FLC/ FLCE applicant to transport/drive any migrant/seasonal agricultural worker(s) or to cause such transportation. Form WH–514 is used to verify that any vehicle used or caused to be used to transport any migrant/seasonal agricultural worker(s) meets the Department of Transportation (DOT) safety standards. When the adopted DOT rules do not apply, FLC applicants seeking authorization to transport any migrant/seasonal agricultural workers use form WH–514a to verify that the vehicles meet the DOL safety standards. The form is complete when the applicant lists identifying vehicle information and an independent mechanic attests that the vehicle meets the required safety standards. Form WH–515 is a doctor’s certificate used to document that a motor vehicle driver or operator meets the minimum DOT physical requirements that the DOL has adopted.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA) 
provides that no person shall engage in any farm labor contracting 
activity for any money or valuable consideration paid or promised to be 
paid, unless such person has a certificate of registration from the 
Secretary of Labor specifying which farm labor contracting activities 
such person is authorized to perform. See 29 U.S.C. 1802(7), 1811(a); 
29 CFR 500.1(c), 500.20(i), 500.40. MSPA also provides that a Farm 
Labor Contractor (FLC) shall not hire, employ, or use any individual to 
perform farm labor contracting activities unless such individual has a 
certificate of registration as a FLC or a certificate of registration 
as a Farm Labor Contractor Employee (FLCE) of the FLC that authorizes 
the activity for which such individual is hired, employed or used. 29 
U.S.C. 1811(b); 29 CFR 500.1(c). Form WH-530 is an application used to 
obtain a FLC or FLCE certificate of registration. The Department 
proposes to revise form WH-530 by dividing it into three separate 
forms, two of which are new forms (WH-535 and WH-540), serving separate 
purposes. Additionally, the Department proposes to develop electronic 
forms mirroring the revised and new paper forms so that applications 
may be submitted online for WH-530, WH-535, and WH-540.
    MSPA section 401 (29 U.S.C. 1841) requires, subject to certain 
exceptions, all FLCs, agricultural employers, and agricultural 
associations to ensure that any vehicle they use or cause to be used to 
transport or drive any migrant or seasonal agricultural worker conforms 
to safety and health standards prescribed by the Secretary of Labor 
under the MSPA and with other applicable federal and state safety 
standards. These MSPA safety standards address the vehicle, driver, and 
insurance. The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) has created forms WH-514, 
WH-514a, and WH-515, which allow FLC applicants to verify to the WHD 
that the vehicles used to transport migrant/seasonal agricultural 
workers meet the MSPA vehicle safety standards and that anyone who 
drives such workers meets the Act's minimum physical requirements. The 
WHD uses the information collected on the forms in deciding whether to 
authorize the FLC/FLCE applicant to transport/drive any migrant/
seasonal agricultural worker(s) or to cause such transportation. Form 
WH-514 is used to verify that any vehicle used or caused to be used to 
transport any migrant/seasonal agricultural worker(s) meets the 
Department of Transportation (DOT) safety standards. When the adopted 
DOT rules do not apply, FLC applicants seeking authorization to 
transport any migrant/seasonal agricultural workers use form WH-514a to 
verify that the vehicles meet the DOL safety standards. The form is 
complete when the applicant lists identifying vehicle information and 
an independent mechanic attests that the vehicle meets the required 
safety standards. Form WH-515 is a doctor's certificate used to 
document that a motor vehicle driver or operator meets the minimum DOT 
physical requirements that the DOL has adopted.

II. Review Focus

    The DOL is particularly interested in comments that:
    * Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    * evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    * enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    * minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who 
are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submissions of responses.

III. Current Actions

Employee Certificate of Registration.
